Translated version of this PSD: Slovak
Investment of up to €165 million, in a series of mortgage CBs to be issued by Všeobecna uverova banka, a.s. ("VUB") over a period of 3 years with a target investment of up to 20% of each issue. The Project falls under the EBRD's Covered Bond Framework II for Slovakia.
The transaction will support the Issuer to access medium- to long-term funding by using a covered bond instrument collateralised by a pool of residential mortgage loans.
The Project will (i) help VUB to set the basis for the repetitive issuances of larger size covered bonds in the future, (ii) support further increase in diversification of the funding sources via stable financing instruments, (iii) address asset-liability maturity mismatches, and (iv) contribute to building up a critical mass of outstanding covered bonds in Slovakia by supporting the largest covered bond issuance in the country, and potentially attracting a wider investor base. Moreover, the Project will contribute to achieving the Bank's GET mandate, as VUB has agreed to commit part of EBRD proceeds invested into covered bonds to be used in line with the Bank's GET eligibility criteria.
